I am new to Android and current user of the 1st gen iPad. I am happy with the iPad from a user's perspective. But I am also a programmer who likes to know what's under the hood. The iPad is a very closed system. And I'd like to dabble in some app development. With that in mind, I did buy a Vizio VTAB1008 last night at Costo. However I wish I had read this forum a little more throughly. I am concerned about the issues with the SD card. As I understand it, I can write to the SD card on my desktop PC, and get the tablet to read it. But I can't write to it from the tablet itself. Is this correct? My desktop is running Windows 7 Professional. I don't know if it requires a Linux machine to properly write to the SD card. Somewhere I read the VTAB1008 is formatted in vfat and not ext4. Don't recall if that file format was for the SD card or the whole device. Also I've read where there is an internal virtual SD card with 2 GB that is NOT the external card. Is 2 GB in addition to the 2 GB Vizio advertises as available. The reason I ask, is my 64 GB iPad is already half full. So a 32 GB SD card would be pushing my limits, although I have to admit most of that is audio content I never listen to. Since I got it at Costo, I have 90 days to return it. I am tempted to opt for a different Android tablet. Looking at the Acer Iconia A100. I like the smaller size of the VTAB1008 and the Acer is a little smaller. Also I've noticed the VTAB1008 is quite sluggish, though it has twice the RAM of my iPad. I am looking for opinions and advice on which way to go. Should I wait for Vizio to release the promised update or look for a better solution. I realize the Vizio is a bargain tablet, but I am willing to get go a little higher in price.
